Increasing Access and Opportunity
Increasing access and opportunity is the theme for this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year’s observance is also the 75th year of celebrating NDEAM. Celebrating not only the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities, but the employers who recognize the value they bring to the table. We are fortunate to repeat ourselves when we say we are surrounded by amazing employers like Dawn’s Pet Stop in Jamestown. And Kelly Monson is just one example of a worker who pours his heart into his job. When you visit a business, you can tell who really loves what they do. This is just one of the many examples of how employment of people with disabilities can bring out the best in our communities. Increasing access and opportunity is not only a theme, it is a way of life for so many. We don’t need to discuss why someone should hire people with disabilities. If you are an employer looking for loyal, dependable workers, there is a labor pool that is ready and willing.
